Subject: SIGNBANK 3: Search Routines
march 21, 2002
Dear SW List members:
Thank you very much for the Search Routines suggested so far:
Search 1: ANY ONE
All signs that include any one of the symbols chosen (what we have now)...
Search 2: EXACT MATCHES
All signs that include exact matches of 2 symbols, 3 symbols, etc...
Search 3: SIMILAR SYMBOLS...or making a "best guess":
If a sign can't be found applying all the search symbols, then signs
with "similar or related symbols" can be listed...
Search 4: EXACT SIGN-SPELLING SEQUENCE
This requires knowledge of how the editor "placed the signs in
SSS"...but the search would be for: "this symbol is number 1, this
symbol is number 2 and so forth"...a sign-spelling search...
Keep your suggestions coming...
